The wind was blowing and the reels were cast during our final tourney of the season. We had over a hundred anglers show for the 20th Annual Cast-Off Fishing Tournament and despite the windy conditions here on the Folly Pier we saw a wide variety of species caught. Everything from blues, whiting, pompano, perch, seatrout, sheepshead, and black drum were reeled in. We expect more favorable conditions as the wind is suppose to calm down for the rest of the week. Expect to start seeing big red bulls and more sheepshead caught off the pier as the temperatures cool.
